Sewer board, city reach tentative accord on pact
A tentative contract has been reached between the city of Decatur and the Adams County Regional Sewer District for the treatment of sewage collected by a soon-to-be-constructed rural sewer project.
Negotiations between the city and regional sewer officials have been ongoing for months as the two parties attempt to reach an agreement outlining fees for the collection, treatment, billing and maintenance services to be provided by the city of Decatur to the regional district, which intends to serve 255 rural customers in the outlying areas of Monmouth and Roe Acres, Bobo, Pleasant Mills and Arcadia Village with a sewer line now estimated to cost some $3.6 million.
At Thursday night’s regular monthly meeting of the the regional sewer board, Mark Burry, who serves as legal counsel for the sewer district, said a treatment agreement has been worked out “to everyone’s mutual satisfaction; I think it’s done.”
